Fire and Mayhem on the Upper Main Line

by Roger Thorne and Bart Van Valkenburgh

Following a brief Society business meeting, we had a most unusual visual presentation. Bart and Roger were granted full access by the Paoli Fire Company to its collection of thousands of slides, taken by its photographers, documenting decades of fires, train derailments, and other well-remembered but seldom-seen emergencies in our community. Bart and Roger found some remarkable photos, and shared selected images of some of these unfortunate disasters.

This presentation was held at the Easttown Library & Information Center in Berwyn, PA starting at 2 pm.
